    This is the most detailed model of a human cell ever created. It was created with x-ray, nuclear magnetic resonance, and cryoelectron microscopy datasets.

    In 1979, 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer killed 2 people. Her answer as to why she did it? “I don’t like Mondays.”

    While the Titanic sank, Charles Joughin, a drunken baker, helped load women and children into lifeboats, refused to seat himself, and threw deck chairs overboard as flotation devices. Later, he survived for hours swimming in freezing water until he was rescued at dawn.

    For a period Brazil was heavily censored under a dictatorship. An artist began writing protest messages on Coke bottles and returning them to the factory. Nobody noticed the white text until they filled the bottle. This bottle teaches you how to make a Molotov cocktail.

    I presume you know the background story. Or probably not.


    A female reporter took exception to one of MM's low cut dresses, and added a few insults to the piece, also adding that she'd look better wearing a potato sack.


    Cue the MM potato sack shoot.

    That's incredible. There's a lot to go wrong there.
    now take one single component and apply the same magnification and I wonder what you'd see.
    then do it again and again.

    In 1913, Sarah Rector, a 10-year-old black girl received a land allotment of 160 acres in Oklahoma. The best farming land was reserved for whites, so she was given a barren plot. Oil was soon discovered there & she became the country's first black millionaire.
